I have continued to be impressed with the positive impact that BGDL has had on the alopecia community. Especially in the last several years with their new makeup line. Helping women with alopecia to feel beautiful and pretty with products customized just to their needs has really furthered the organization's cause. I've been lucky enough to continue my involvement volunteering at various events and the experience has been very rewarding.
Bald Girls Do Lunch is the best thing that happened to me as a parent since my daughter's alopecia areata returned. Lindsay was packing for college and her hair started shedding like crazy. Again. We thought her AA days were behind her, but apparently they weren't. Thank god we found Thea Chassin and Bald Girls Do Lunch to help us get through it. Instead of giving our donations to a big and impersonal foundation for research I am so happy to support Bald Girls because I know how dedicated Thea and her phone volunteers are to go the extra for me and for Lindsay.
This is an outstanding example of an organization that has a clearly defined mission and lives up to it on every level. Bald Girls Do Lunch provides public education and support for women living with alopecia areata while also offering practical advice. Thank you, Thea Chassin, for continuing to help so many women!
I am very impressed by the multiple ways Bald Girls Do Lunch reaches out to the community. In addition to organizing special events and serving as an invaluable resource for information and support, BGDL also provides a vital service in educating the general public. The email newsletter is especially informative and well-designed. Thanks to Thea Chassin, countless people have had their lives changed for the better.
This is no ordinary charity for alopecia, this is exemplary and it's called Bald Girls Do Lunch! I'm a proud donor to Bald Girls because when I called to get my questions answered, on behalf of my sister's new diagnosis, the professionalism, care and speed of response was fantastic. I know of another alopecia organization and honestly, Bald Girls is far superior for women. I wanted to know about beauty and style options because my sister is in transition....not enough hair to make a decent hair do, but she's not ready for a wig. She's struggling to figure out what to do. Thea Chassin herself gave me at least 6 different resources for head wraps, hats, partial wigs. She asked if I wanted to be connected with another woman in my region in the same situation helping a sister. That's the personal attention that I had heard Bald Girls is known for. I am eager to support them. And to top it off they sent their Alopecia Care Kit to my sister. It has a comfy sleep hat that Thea designed herself. It's just perfect. My sis loves it.
Brilliant and oh so caring! This should be the first stop always for women with alopecia areata. Bald Girls Do Lunch has just launched their newest Alopecia Care Kits . As one of the BG Passionistas, I got to help determine what should go into the kits. If I had had one when I was first diagnosed, I would have felt so connected to other women and to great resources.
I am always happy to donate to this charity because they do things that matter! I feel great when I see how far my donations go to help women with their day to day living.
I think Bald Girls Do Lunch is a wonderful organization. Thea Chassin, the thoroughly dedicated and creative founder of BGDL, has empowered and united women and girls with alopecia through casual meet-ups, fun events and informative newsletters. She started the organization with the desire to share all her first-hand knowledge and experience with the various issues that affected her along her journey with alopecia. Women no longer need to feel alone, afraid and ashamed. There is a supportive community of women out there for you!
I'm a supporter of Bald Girls Do Lunch and applaud Thea Chassin's having founded and developed the organization. Thea's hard work, dedication, and resourcefulness have improved the lives of many.
